A woman in Troup, Texas, asked her Facebook friends to come and shoot her dog, going so far as to offer a gun. Although the woman has since surrendered the dog to rescue services, many were outraged by the woman’s post, KYTX reported.
"I need someone to come shoot my dog, nobody here has the heart do do it!" the woman wrote in a Facebook post published on Sept. 17. "We will provide the gun!"
According to animal control officers, the dog’s owner said she couldn’t care for the dog, a 3-year-old Saint Bernard/English bulldog mix named Cinnamon, My San Antonio reported.
Cinnamon also apparently kept getting into trash.
“It’s devastating,” said animal shelter coordinator Nanette Moss. “I work with these dogs every day. They are my life and when she walked through my door it just broke my heart. She's a sweet dog and how can somebody shoot a sweet dog?”
The woman is not facing charges because she surrendered Cinnamon and the dog has since found a foster family. She will be available for adoption after she’s spayed and received vaccines.
When KYTX reporters went to the woman’s house, her son answered the door and said: “I know how the media works. You people are the f-----ng devil.”
